Is the Braque d'Auvergne right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Auvergne Pointing Dog; Bleu d' Auvergne

The basics:
The Braque d'Auvergneis is a rare but highly regarded French pointer that can retrieve upland game birds or waterfowl. It has even collected its own legend about being the dog of the Knights of Malta. Alas, finding one of these dogs may be only a bit less difficult than locating the Holy Grail, since there are said to be only about 300 puppies born a year.

Appearance / health:
The Auvergne Pointing Dog is a large dog with a strong bone structure and a long, broad, dome-shaped head. It has dark hazel, medium-sized eyes and a long, strong, arched neck. The back is short and straight, and the tail is averagely thick and two-thirds docked.

The Auvergne Pointing Dog should be given a regular brushing. Ears should be cleaned on a regular basis.

Daily exercise is required for this breed. Walks, jogs, short sprints, treks, picnics, and other outdoor activities may help to keep these dogs healthy and happy.

Behavior / temperament:
The Auvergne Pointing Dog has a strong sense of smell. As a puppy, it displays strong pointing instincts that become perfect as it grows into an adult. Although slightly stubborn, the breed is kind and relaxed making a loving companion. Their high energy needs an outlet in the form of training, exercise, and games.

A talented breed, the Auvergne Pointing Dog requires consistent training to develop its natural pointing instincts. It responds best to firm and gentle training methods.
